Where to get a ukulele

We're working with and through local community groups to supply ukuleles to those that might not be able to afford it so contact info@revolutonarts.com if you have a group that you would like to nominate.

If you don’t have a ukulele you can still order and have delivered one from Chamberlain Music.

Keep fit and dance during lockdown with Bruce Carson, member of street dance crew KNE who were semi-finalists of Britain's Got Talent 2019! Bruce will teach you the dance styles and routes in breaking, street and contemporary.

This week: Who likes Afrobeats? Because it’s this week is all about doing the Azonto dance this Thursday. This routine is simple but fast so it will still be a challenge to perform but we know you can do it! It's full of good vibes and energy to keep you smiling all the way until the end.

This event runs on Zoom which is a private virtual 'room' where you can all see each other and Bruce will be able to give you pointers on your technique — or you can choose to have your camera switched off if you prefer.

Ramadan in Lockdown Luton — film premiere

7.30pm–8.30pm | Zoom & Facebook Live | Free

An evening of film, monologue and discussion on the theme of 'touch' inspired by stories from Bury Park — with award-winning actor and playwright Sudha Bhuchar.

Join us for a creative online event, featuring:

Ramadan in Lockdown Luton — short film premiere

This crowdsourced short film was compiled from video footage submitted by people in Luton observing Ramadan in lockdown conditions, telling the story through the lens of ‘touch’.

The film chronicles the story of this holy month and highlights the poignancy of exploring ‘touch’ at a time when we are experiencing ‘absence of touch’.

Monologue & reflections inspired by Bury Park

At this event award-winning actor and playwright Sudha Bhuchar will also share a new monologue, ‘The Eid Hug’, performed by Naveed Khan.

Sudha will also share her reflections of celebrating Eid in her multi-faith/secular extended family, living a convivial multicultural life.

Live Q & A

After the film and performances, there will be a Q & A and open discussion with many of the participants who sent submissions for the film, chaired by Revoluton Arts’ Community Activist, Imrana Mahmood.

Register to take part in the Q & A on Zoom.
